Feeling symptomatic again. It totally sucks. Jul 7, 2012

      Thought I had it beat, but I'll always have PTSD. The best I can do is manage the symptoms. I have, I do and I WILL continue to!

        Aww thanks Nicolette. PH took it when we took ITL to the beach a couple of weeks ago. I was off the forum for a long break. Saw you've been doing the same. How are you doing?

        Hi Iam. I'm just really tired from being sick and then overwhelmed with the backlog of work. Getting there slowly. Miss being on here but I found a couple of minutes would turn into an hour and I was avoiding my work due to being overwhelmed. Catch 22 so had to step away. Glad the 3 of you all caught up - sounds wonderful x

        I'm struggling but getting there, you know how it is. I'm a very big bird watcher but I only know my European birds.

        Stay well. x

        Yeah, I know how the struggling goes. Been there since last week knowing PH was moving. She and I stayed up late Sat night after ITL went to bed. I had to beat her on last time at cards LOL! Bitter sweet......So glad for her, but struggling with feeling sooo alone.

        Thanks Bloom. I am a little surprised at the anxiety I feel just thinking about going back to work. I'm a good employee when working, but never seemed to stay with anything more than a few years. I'd like to change that. I also want to do something I enjoy. Fortunately I am in a position to take my time for now....sigh ;o)

        I'm sorry. I have been fighting flu like symptoms for awhile. Although I am suspecting it's not the flu since it's been ongoing since the dr. increased the wellbutrin dosage. GAH!
        I hope you feel better soon!

        My boys used to love those books. My brother, Peter, gave the whole series to our oldest son Ben. He had a book holder built with Benjamin Bunny painted on one end and Peter Rabbit on the other ;o)

        Clancy is doing great! He really amazes me. At 10 weeks he sits, shakes, retrieves drops, understands no and today he actually sat and stayed when I told him to while I emptied a wheelbarrow of manure in the garden. He did it 3 times. I'd never told him to stay before. Smart dog and such a joy!

        Thanks Curiouser....How did you know? I am really, really struggling. Still see my trauma T every week, but cut back to every 3 weeks with my regular T last Tuesday. Emailed him today that I think I am running from him asking if we could meet before the 24th. Makes me feel, fickle, foolish and vulnerable...GAH!
